The X Factor Recap: Stars Join The Contestants In A Ludicrous Finale

Not only was this move distracting and off-putting, but it totally undermined the point of the competition. These are supposed to be discovered talents, not established stars doing duet performances, and that’s exactly what this move made them seem like.
